More Details about the Statue. Life on the island of Sri Lanka, a South Asian country with an ancient history, is intertwined with the backbone of Buddha philosophy. All occupations in ancient Sri Lanka arose out of a very peaceful religious background. Every field of art was nourished by the inspiration of Buddhism.
Carving and sculpture is one of those arts. Among the remains found in the archaeological excavations of the ancient kingdoms of the country are exquisite sculptures and carvings made by stonemasons and woodcarvers in both stone and wood. About 70% of them are structures built for religious shrines. The artists who lived on this island surrounded by the sea from all directions have produced creative works of art in the high styles unique to this country. Few examples of ancient sitting idols with samadhi dhyana mudra found so far.

The robe covering the left shoulder is revealed by a fine line drawn across the chest. The right leg, bent at the right knee, rests on the left leg, which is likewise bent. (Ardha Padmasana Mudra) This sitting style is typical of local Sri Lankan statues. Instead of this, Padmasana is found in Indian statues. The best proof that these statues were painted and colored in ancient times is the parts of painted plaster that have not been destroyed on the surface of the statues.
The native way of life was greatly affected by the occasional foreign invasions of Sri Lanka. It also had a great influence on such high art works.
That is why the later Buddha statues have artistic features belonging to different cultures. By now, many generations of ancient artisans who had the skills to carve statues with the identity of Sri Lanka have dilapidated.But we found a talented artist who preserves that ancient nativeness and preserves his generational professional skills.
